My new Pomegranate Gin Fizz is perfect for winter gatherings and Christmas parties! This seasonally fresh and light drinking cocktail is not only easy to make, it’s a beautiful drink that will impress your guests as well.
How to Make a Gin Fizz
The traditional gin fizz cocktail is slightly difference from the pomegranate gin fizz that I have made today. It contains egg whites ( something that I try not to include at cocktail parties) and super fine sugar. The ingredients for a classic gin fizz are:
- lemon juice
- club soda
- fine sugar
- egg white
To make it you simply pour everything excepting the club soda into a Boston Shaker that is filled with ice cubes and shake it until it’s cold and very frothy. The “fizz” part is how the egg whites get frothy in the shaking . For my recipe, we are going with the fizz is from the club soda.
You can easily find pomegranate juice at The Real Canadian Superstore ( I have linked to the actual product page, if it moves just search “pomegranate juice in their search bar) for my Canadian friends and it definitely should be available at specialty stores in the States as well.
The rosemary sprig is just for garnish and for smell, another aspect that is sometimes forgotten with cocktails, you don’t have to mix everything into the cocktail, a garnish that adds a bouquet to the cocktail can bring it all together.
You can pair this cocktail perfectly with the cheeses on my Cheeseboard post!
